What is RakeSearch?

The enormous size of the diagonal Latin squares space makes it unfeasible to enumerate all its objects straightforwardly in reasonable time. So, in order to discover the structure of this space, sophisticated search methods are needed. In RakeSearch project, we implement an application that picks up separate pairs of mutually orthogonal DLSs, which allows to reconstruct full graphs of their orthogonality. You can contribute to our research by running a free program on your computer.

For account creation please use a Crunch_4Science invitation code.

Results of the first half of January 2019!
Dear folks!

New Year and holidays! Many people who traveled in Karelia in these days returned home with memories about the magic of coniferous forests, deep star-filled sky, Ruskeala, and other fascinating views of winter nature. Snow and ice - main painters and architects of nature of this time. Thousands of years ago they created many landscape details that we can view now... and left. Ice Age is over. But they back every winter to building of ice bridges, decoration forest, and form of huge snow drifts - for storing water, that very need for life after spring prompting. But what is snow? Snow is ice also! Millions and billions tiny and beautiful ice crystals that form in the atmosphere and gently lowering to the ground. Snowflake! Snowflake unites snow and ice and became the symbol of this month!

Many interesting facts about snowflakes you can read at Dr. Kenneth G. Libbrecht site - SnowCrystals.com. One of the photographs from this site became a badge (with the permission of the author) with which we congratulate the following 183 participants:

Christmas Graphs. Part 3!
Dear participants!

The third part of "Christmas types" of graph from ODLS found in RakeSearch project were published on preliminary results page. 8 new graphs and 1 known makes up this set:

[R9_000469786/02] - 40 vertices and 400 edges. Each vertex from "north" and "south polar caps" linked to nodes in equatorial belt! Previously we see similar structures but this is larger.

[R9_000478253/02] - 48 vertices and 126 edges, already published as Necklace about a year ago. This graph was very easy to spot and it was found first. Now we publish it as item of the ordered catalog. With edges as the straight line, the figure becomes even more astonishing!

[R9_000479189/03] - 44 vertices and 288 edges,

[R9_000486938/01] - 12 vertices and 17 edges,

[R9_000493179/02] - 96 vertices and 411 edges,

[R9_000493909/02] - 96 vertices and 432 edges,

[R9_000494626/01] - 40 vertices and 304 edges,

[R9_000494629/02] - 24 vertices and 96 edges,

[R9_000507363/01] - 28 vertices and 104 edges,

This is the last part of "Christmas graphs". About a year ago (22th of December 2017) we could to detect the first type of graph and publish it. Over the past year, we have completed the post-processing of those results that were obtained before him and with him. The cycle is closed. :) Recently where finished post-processing of next large bunch of results - in several times larger than already published set, but we decided not to watch them until we publish these. Now we are all - crunchers and project developers are equal. We know about findings in the published set, and don't know what awaits us in the new data. And it's very interesting!

Thank you for all crunchers for attention to the project. Your computers are allowed to make these findings! Successes, unstoppable work of computers and discoveries! And Happy New Year!

Thank you and happy crunching!

Christmas Graphs. Part 2!
Dear participants!

Next set of types of graph from ODLS found in RakeSearch project were published on preliminary results page. It contains the following 8 graphs:

[R9_000435650/01] - 36 vertices and 87 edges:

[R9_000437182/01] - 16 vertices and 19 edges:

[R9_000437475/01] - 40 vertices and 103 edges:

[R9_000441537/01] - 9 vertices and 8 edges:

[R9_000447311/05] - 20 vertices and 36 edges:

[R9_000463421/02] - 24 vertices and 54 edges.

[R9_000463423/01] - 24 vertices and 60 edges:

[R9_000464235/03] - 176 vertices and 912 edges:

Some of them look chaotic, but three other - symmetrical, two from them - with three-radial symmetry! Thank you for you attention to the project what allows to make such finds!
